Messy Marv is coming to San Diego's one and only 4th & B on May 28th, 2011 at 10p.m. One of the most extraordinary products of recent Fillmore history is Messy Marv, a rapper whose life reflects the neighborhood’s struggle with a half century of urban renewal and the ’80s-era introduction of crack into America’s ghettos.
In 1996, when he was still in 10th grade, he released his first album, Messy Situations (Ammo). Though it sold around 15,000 units, Mess admits he didn’t take music seriously at first. Messy Marv has since pursued his talent with a vengeance, recording a slew of projects for his own label, Scalen LLC.
